and the City
June 10 Episode
Sex is still slow to heat
up this season, but this third episode is an improvement over last week's
dull season opener. This week offers lots of relationship definition
and thoughts on throwing limits away.
Charlotte and Trey get it on in public. A lot. In taxis,
at parties, public bathrooms, etc. This is a new twist on Trey only wanting
Char when he can't have her, but Charlotte finally puts her foot down
and demands bed locations for nookie. Can Trey get it up in a normal bed?
Find out next week. Last week he did it on her leg. Eeeeewwww. Frankly,
I'm getting a little tired of this relationship. Charlotte wants definition
(are we married? Are we not married?), and I'm beginning to agree with
her. We need something truly new with this pair or at least truly funny.
Funniest subplot of this episode: Miranda dating a guy who pees in front
of her. This leads to her peeing in front of him (brave girl), with
a finale of him taking a dump with the door open. Too much intimacy
for Miranda, who freaks. The look on her face is priceless. Maybe too
much intimacy for a lot of people. I thought it was funny, but my s/o
thought it went too far. The cat wandering out of the fart laden bathroom
was a nice touch. Apparently, performing bodily functions in front of
others is still an unexplored frontier for many.
Do you pee or poop in front of your significant other?

New love for Samantha! A sensual female artist (Sonia Braga) falls in
love with Sam. Throughout the episode, Sam does the "I'm not a
relationship person" thing, but gives in the end. This leads to
musings about whether Samantha is a closet lesbian and never knew it.
I personally doubt it, although I'd like to see her matched against
the "Power Lesbians" from two seasons ago (one of my favorite
episodes). A nice big lipsmacker kiss happens between the two ladies
at the end. I always wonder about mega amounts of smeared lipstick in
these cases, though. Sort of spoils the moment. This vignette also boasts
a nice hand washing scene after Sam plays fingerpaints with la sexy
artista. Sonia Braga and Kim Catrall both make a strong statement about
the confident sexuality of women over 40.
New love for Carrie! While out on a non-date with Big (whose relationship
remains a mystery to all, including Carrie), she meets a terrific jazz
musician/club owner (Ray). This guy is too cool. Sort of like a Blues
Brother that is actually good looking. Go Carrie! We avidly await steamy
bedroom scenes with this hottie. Hey HBO, how about a little male nudity
here? But what about Big? He's jealous. Will Big mess up Carrie's new
relationship? He's trying. Bad Big. We don't root for you anymore.
Carrie's dresses are fabulous in this episode. Her fluffy skirts are
an engineering marvel. No good shoe scenes, though.
"What's Sex Got to Do with It?"
week they all get thier panties in a bunch.
again, the Vo-Man takes a look at the artform of his people.
